"So... less than 1% of the world population, then?"

With 5% of the wealth.

80% of the world population survives on £10 a day or less so not much of a market there.

The richest country in the world, the US, has no trade deal with the EU and for decades we've had the ridiculous situation whereby a $400 item goes for £400 here despite exchange rates indicating it should be £300 - all due to import duties.

We keep hearing the EU is our biggest market - how much is that because of the barriers to trade with the richest country in the world?

Don't get me wrong - I voted Remain and think we should have stayed in the EU but we need to face life as it is not how we wish it was.
